Author Finds a Revolutionary Way to Engage with Genealogy Community

Robin R. Foster uses Chat with Robin to engage with her readers. She recounts the history of David Nelms (1806-?) of Anson County, North Carolina. Here she can continue the story.

By now, you have discovered how I have used Chat with Robin. I have provided you with a beginning tutorial in Introduce Genealogy to the Next Generation: EmulateMe and FamilySearch with my grandmother, Mrs. Otis Edna Tucker Vance (1905-1996), and I also shared my father, Robert Foster (1938-1988) in What If Your Father Could Talk to You or Your Grandchildren? It was wonderful to hear and see him in a video. I save the best for last. I want to introduce myself using the video above.

Engage on Social Media

If you purchased my book, My Best Genealogy Tips: Finding Formerly Enslaved Ancestors, you will notice I am telling the story of David Nelms (1806-?) of Anson County, North Carolina. I used my voice, and it imported my photo. This excites me for a lot of reasons:

  1. I can take the story and talk about this (and the historical records) with my readers where they are on social media.

  2. I have several genealogy books. I have a group that goes with each genealogy book. The groups can learn about the historical records and where to find them

  3. I can create a URL and put it on FamilySearch's Sources. Then other people can find the principle I talk about or the person on the Family Tree.

  4. You can use this to go out on new social media. I am starting Reddit. I am taking this video to find others who want to learn about enslavement and freedom.

  5. In my Genealogy! Just Ask! community, I asked for feedback on this revolutionary Avatar. As usual, they surprised me by telling me what I had not thought of Feedback

"It's important to have a connection to my roots," Robin R. Foster (Chat with Robin)

I can think of one more revolutionary change in how we do genealogy. I wrote "My Best Genealogy Tips: Finding Formerly Enslaved Ancestors," and the book is popular. I want to engage with my readers in a more personal way. With Chat with Robin, you can ask me any questions about the book.
